Ben has resigned......sorry I can't help but giggle...ALOT

Ben has resigned
WWW.CROOKSANDLIARS.COM for active links.

I think the plagarism done him in.

"In the past 24 hours, we learned of allegations that Ben Domenech plagiarized material that appeared under his byline in various publications prior to contracting with him to write a blog that launched Tuesday. An investigation into these allegations was ongoing, and in the interim, Domenech has resigned, effective immediately."

We appreciate the speed and thoroughness with which our readers and media outlets surfaced these allegations. Despite the turn this has taken, we believe this event, among other things, testifies to the positive and powerful role that the Internet can play in the the practice of journalism.

I'd really like to hear Howard Kurtz's response to this news since he just penned a piece on the outage Ben's hire has caused. Howard was also a big defender of Ben in an earlier piece.

**** There was some really great responses on the WaPo blog comment page about his idealogical rhetoric etc...well worth the read.
